Accelerogram on ANSYS12

Distinguished members:

I am kind of a new user on ANSYS.

I am trying to perform a simple analysis on a steel chimney (already modeled) running a known earthquake that I have at my disposal. As many of you know, it comes as an accelerogram.

I'm having a tough time trying to figure out how to do this analysis. If someone can help me, please do so  =D

Thanks for interesting

I think you will have to integrate twice and apply displacement (D command) vs. time at the base.
